In June, 2023, 22 young women from Patrick Fogarty Secondary School, Orillia Secondary School, Twin Lakes Secondary School, and Ecole Nouvelle Alliance were granted scholarships totalling $28,000 from the CFUW Orillia Education Foundation.  Two special scholarships in the amount of $2,000 were awarded to the Lakehead University Humanities 101 program. Two students also each received a scholarship of $1,350 from the Bev Long Memorial fund.  CFUW Orillia’s 2023 scholarships totalled $32,700.  Since 1974, CFUW Orillia has awarded $403,975 in scholarship funds to 749 women!

This year’s deserving students met the CFUW Orillia criteria of Academic Ability, Integrity, Love of Learning, Leadership, and School as well as Community Involvement. We wish these amazing young women every success in the future.


Scholarship funds provided to students have been primarily raised through the annual CFUW Orillia Homes for Scholarships Tour and this successful event will be continued.


In January of 2023, the CFUW Orillia Education Foundation was incorporated to manage and distribute the scholarship funds and to work towards increasing the endowments.  The Foundation has applied for charitable status and when that has been achieved, donations will be eligible for tax receipts.
